Subject: Load of fun
I thought this commercial was a load of fun and had a bit of a laugh. Doesn't take itself too seriously. Reminiscent of what I consider the best of the cigarette commercials, the Alpines from the late 1950s (http://archive.org/details/tobacco_ujq74e00).

The commercial starts at :22. The singers are truly shower singers. The limericks aren't so bad. A good example of cigarette TV advertising.

This entry has a long, blank space at the beginning and the end that you might want to be advised of. I point this out because you'll notice that it doesn't start right away.

The reddish tint of this film really gives this that 1960's feel. The actors, the clothes, and set also contribute to that vibe.

I like the four singers and the music as arranged and performed. The singers sound great and unified and the deceptively complex music flows nicely underneath. The limerics seem a little dated or cheesy, though. I'm sure it made sense at the time, but it (the limerick poetry) obviously hasn't worn well.
